Cisco offers Cisco ScanSafe as the industry leader of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) web security. Classic web security services require complicated configuration on the end-user’s PCs to set up a web proxy providing threat protection from malicious websites. The ScanSafe Connector cuts out your overhead by incorporating your connection to the ScanSafe service directly from your office router instead of your PC.
Cisco offers Cisco ScanSafe so that any PC or mobile device brought into your office is provided with enterprise-class web security with zero configuration. Cisco ISR G2 is also provided with the ScanSafe Connector to automatically forward Internet web traffic from the branch office directly to the ScanSafe service, where it’s filtered based on business policies and real-time threat alerts. This process also has the extra benefit of removing a lot of Internet web traffic from the corporate WAN connection back to HQ, resulting in cost savings by keeping non-business traffic off the mission-critical (and expensive) enterprise WAN.
Cisco provides this technology with features that include:
• Consistent end-user experience no matter the location or device type.
• Consistent security enforcement of enterprise security policies.
• Decreasing your IT overhead by removing the need for end client configuration.
